The Clothiers Arms dates from at least 1820.

I wonder how much that pub sign would be sold for today in that condition? Several thousand pounds I’d guess!

Kate Spurrier emailed me in November 2002 and told me that her Great Grandfather, Charles Henry Baker (1886-1963), was once the landlord of the Clothiers Arms although Kate did not know when he held the licence.

 The pub sign hung from a large ornamental ironwork bracket, which dominated the frontage of the building.  The Clothiers Arms closed in the 1960’s. The building was later used an office, and in 2003 the front ground floor room was converted to a book shop. It is still known as the Old Clothiers Arms.
